to minimize surface disruption on columbus avenue between union and powell streets. [speaker not understood] discussionses with north beach community groups including renew sf, washington square park, friends of washington square park, telegraph hill dwellers, joining the development of the final supplemental seisseir, from 2006 to 2008. during the environmental review period, presentationses were made. comments received, and incorporated into the final environmental document. now, since 2006, the project held 10 community meetings in north beach to inform residents, business owners and organizations of the proposed construction activities. during the project's ten-year planning and development process, other retrieval shaft options along stockton and columbus street right-of-way were evaluate and had presented to the public including the option of removing the tbm from the chinatown station site. the environmental process concluded in 2008 that constructing the retrieval shaft on columbus avenue would cause the least disruption to traffic and public access to locals and businesses. now, th
don't have to take this thing out through columbus avenue. we could have taken it out through the park and left the roadway open. but we had even more vocal opposition to the people who didn't want to harm a single tree or a single blade of grass. this was the compromise that was intended to mollify the public. there is nothing wrong in principle with pagoda option. it's just there are additional costs there. they have to come from somewhere. my city is not a trash dumb. i don't want to leave anything in the ground. that's a practice that should have stopped with washing the ships into the store line and the gold rush era and filling in the bay to extend the shoreline. we want people to pick up our trash, to separate our recyclables, to reuse, repurpose what we can * to practice sustainability. to set leadership by example. do whatever you have to do, but let's not leave these pieces somewhere in the ground where they're going to be someone else's problem, but someone else's problem at our expense. thank you. >> our next speaker, please. >> julie christian son, joan wood, fannie renwa
for a future project should it continue up columbus avenue. but that's on the cost side. on the benefit side, we would be relieving north beach of that 9 or 10 months of construction impact that they would be seeing now for a project that they won't at least directly benefit from for many years down the road. so, it is a trade-off. i think it's a reasonable trade-off to make, that the point that i think you'll hear from many speakers -- and we've heard from the supervisor, it's just not fair to subject us, this neighborhood to that amount of disruption when the benefit is so far out and uncertain at that. and i think that's a reasonable position and a reasonable trade-off and that's why we are recommending that as our kind of backstop plan. if we're unable to make something happen off-site. * the final thing i think you'll hear from folks is kind of our final backstop, which is if for some reason going to the pagoda site doesn't work and for some reason we can't make leaving it underground work, which i don't anticipate we would have trouble doing, but we don't have that fully designed and a
what you're saying by making traffic miserable on columbus avenue, i think cab drivers are going to stop recommending these establishments in these areas because it will be too hard to get to. and it sounds like you really need some environmental work done before you go ahead and close off any part of columbus avenue, even one lane. where are we going to drop off the passengerses at the restaurants? at the bars? at the night clubs? you know, this is a problem. and i think until you resolve -- create some mitigation measures, solve these issues, you're not ready to bring any option forward. and, in fact, as listed here you can only deal with these two options. i think option 4 seems like the one everyone likes, but at the same time, i think an e-i-r is required. i'm very big on e-i-rs because particularly in north beach, because where can people go to get diverted from traffic? you go into the hills. you're going to see a lot of cab drivers and private citizens going into the hills or clogging some of the chinatown streets to get to north beach or to find parking in north beach, o
lot of businesses in-=dx' north beach because they columbus avenue and they ended up ak weeing to the concerns. the lastri"cñ point is is about the meters on/ajgñ sundays. you ought to be concernedj7 that, and the impact it's going to have on the businesses that operate on sundays, and the fact thatg p4z people, not just outside the city but in the city expect to go somewhere without worrying about putting money in the meter and the)pñ the impact it will have once they get a ticket you won't see them back shopping anywhere. i think you ought to take thisyjp!Ñ÷ concern up before it gets implemented on january they're actually going to have three weeks ofq< vi leeway before9 % ythey start actually issuing tickets. they're go1'nnn be hiring new parking patrol officers and i'm very much concernedvjpe going to harm the business -- the small business atmosphere of this city. and i urge you to act -- because i heard8(d owens that he actually blamed you, the board of supervisors, for implementing this and you had nothing to do wit

. they have a great anecdote about what 457d in columbus, ohio after lulu lemon opened. a cornucopia of yoga studios opened afterward. it doesn't seem like a fad. it is remarkable what they teach you at a lulu lemmon. and fifth they have clean inventory. that means even if it appeals to those who are wealthy, the price points are ridiculous, i think, and they wouldn't have to take a lot of markdowns because they don't have a lot of inventory. lulu is in an unenviable position that is shared by chipotle and whole foods. it's growing so much faster than anyone else that it gets a multiple that's tough to justify. 40 times next year's earnings. 4-0. that's because they're deciding it might be inexpensive on a price to earnings multiple in the out years. looks expensive now but in 2015 it will be cheap. eventually that game ends. it did for whole foods when the large number made it possible for them to keep blowing away the estimates. and tended for chipotle with the rapid deceleration of same-store sales. i'm telling you in the true fashion of my good friend herb greenberg, both could happen to
